WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Even though 50% of marriages end in divorce, there is tremendous stigma for divorced parents.

Men screw up so many relationships because we don’t know how to be vulnerable. We are not allowed to own our feelings.

Trying to make everyone happy results in not being true to yourself anymore.

How to move past the victim mentality and finger-pointing

Refocus on who you want and need to be.

How to collaborate as parents after divorce

Advice for married guys who come from divorced backgrounds—get comfortable with being vulnerable and get comfortable with yourself. Not everyone has to like you or agree with you.

The grass is greener where you water it. Don’t look for another relationship. Feed the one you have.

In marriage you have to be yourself. Don’t sweep stuff under the rug. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with your partner in a respectful way.

Look at the stuff you’re not okay with and find a way to fix those things.
We can always bring new things into an existing marriage.

The idea of “you complete me” is wrong. Both partners need to be complete people.

Give yourself space to respond. It’s okay to go to be angry.

Set a deadline for when you will resolve a discussion.

Make time for fun and play in your relationship. Find what makes you happy together and do it more often.

The Divorce Bucket List –Make a list of things we did not do for ourselves when we were married.

Creating an Individual and Married Bucket list.

You don’t need to find someone to find value in life. It’s okay to be single.

  1. This interview was facinating. Thank you The Good Dad Project. I found your channel while watching every Chris Voss video I could find on YouTube. Yours was the best one I’ve watched thus far. I dig your interview style and I’m a fan of the channel. Anyway, I’m getting divorced and am in a hostage negotiation of sorts. 😳 I learned Tactical Empathy from Chris Voss, implemented it and it has changed my life for the better. My relationship with the soon to be ex wife has never been more open and honest. I’m finally getting through to her, seeing results, and my 4 year old daughter is thriving! Yes, I use Tactical Empathy with the kiddo all day long. She eats it up like candy and I feel like the best dad ever. Don’t let your attorney lead the negotiations. They want to compromise and are brain washed by society in general. My opinion. Negotiate with your wife directly, Chris Voss style! Tactical empathy is a great way to get the best outcome possible! Whatever that means to you. Use the late night radio dj voice, do an accusation audit and identify the black swan(s). 💯 Good luck, I’m rooting for you.
